Willpower! We all have it, some more than others. The good news is that the mind and brain sciences show that you can strengthen willpower or “self- control.” This manual, that I have developed and used with great effect in dozens of classrooms, shows how, using fun and engaging games.
iWill’s game kit is a brain training work-out for your students. Here you will find games that your students can play on their own or in teams. All of the games are simple and appropriate for a wide range of students, K-12. Each game is described, along with the relevant resources, and methods of keeping score (assessing!). I also provide a list of references for those interested in the scientific evidence behind these games.
Make iWill part of your program’s curriculum. As willpower grows, so too will student learning and decision-making, in and out of school.
